Inaugural call by cruise ship Zenith at Portland

The inaugural visit to Portland Port by Pullmantur’s cruise liner Zenith took place on 29 April 2019.

Pullmantur Cruises is based in Madrid Spain, starting operations as an off shoot of the Madrid based travel agency Pullmantur.

Zenith is a sistership to Horizon, and like Horizon is a mid-sized ship with 12 decks and a passenger capacity of 1,828.

Departing Vigo in Spain on 27 April, Zenith made her way to Portland. From there the ship went to Cherbourg and then on to Dover.

Her next port of call is IJmuiden in Holland and she arrived at Malmo in Sweden on 4 May.

Portland Port is used to a diverse mix of passengers regularly welcoming German guests and so far this year the port has also seen large numbers of Swiss and Italian visitors.

Now the port welcomes Spanish travellers too, further enhancing the wide mix of cultures visiting the local area in 2019.
